About Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea

The Southern Living Plant Collection has recently released the Sunbow series of native Azaleas that bring exceptional color to the spring landscape. These native azaleas are deciduous and will go dormant during the winter. While they are dormant Sunbow Azaleas will set their buds on their branch tips, so you do not want to trim them until after you get your spring blooms! The Solar Flare Sunbow Azalea produces neon yellow single form blooms with shades of orange that have a sweet honey-suckle like fragrance that is great for attracting butterflies. These Azaleas grow well in a light shade to full sun location and should be planted in well-drained slightly acidic soil and fertilized early every spring with a slow release granular fertilizer.

*The Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.*

Planting Instructions

  • water before planting

    Dear Seller,

    You sent me the wrong Plant. I ordered the Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea – big flower, but you sent me a totally different plant with the little flowers, which I do not want it. The flowers on the plant you sent me is totally different than the picture of the Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea you showed online. I wish you can do something for me. Thank you very much!

    I introduced my friends to your website after I ordered the Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea because my friends love plants too. I was so excited when I received box of the plant. However, I am so disappointed when I opened the box and saw the plant because you sent the wrong plant. I attached the pictures of the plant I received and the pictures of the Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea – which you showed on your website. You may see the big difference. Thank you!

    I sent you 3 emails regarding the issue above, but I do not receive your response.
    Please assist me!

    I ordered four and am very pleased with all of them. Packaging was damaged a little in transit but the plants were not harmed. All are planted and starting to sprout new leaves. Buds are showing signs of opening soon!

  4. PATRICIA BURNS (verified owner)

    Branches are 18″ long; bare of leaves when arrived but leaves coming out now; large buds; really nice plant; very pleased with plant.

  5. Christopher Chan (verified owner)

    Packaging can be better. Lots of the new buds and some branches were broken off on arrival.

    This company has wonderful customer service. They were prompt with delivery and answering any questions I had about my plant.

  7. Heather L. Massie (verified owner)

    I bought 3 in all. One is starting to grow really well. One is slow but is startibg to sprout, and the first one I planted isn’t growing at all. I’m slightly concerned about that one… I’m hoping for large, full beautiful floweres by summer’s end…

    It was already pregrown and in a pot, so super easy to transfer to the ground. Also, super easy instructions for a new gardner.
